Our tour guide, Heather, is amazing! We had a fun day exploring the island. Heather made us feel super welcome and she is so knowledgeable of the island. We booked the tour through our hotel concierge, and everything from pickup to lunch was great. Highly recommend the small group experience and make sure you ask for Heather as your guide :)

What a powerful experience!! Austin was AMAZING! He is knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We had a bit of hiccup at pearl harbor, when waiting for the tour they had a glitch in the system and we did not receive our standby text. We had been waiting 3 hours to go to out to the memorial. It was time to leave, but Austin was extremely accommodating and made sure that we got to experience the memorial. This tour does not schedule a time for the memorial tour and you do have to wait. Make a reservation!! Highly suggest asking for Austin!
